Sorry for the silence over on my blog lately – I’ve had a busy few weeks! At the end of November Visit Cheshire kindly invited me on a trip to Chester to visit the historic walled city at this magical time of year and enjoy the Christmas market. We got the train from Milton Keynes directly into Chester, which took less than an hour and a half! It was so easy and amazingly quick and no need to change trains. I was very excited to stay in Chester as I’d visited briefly a couple of times when I was younger…

If you’re local to Milton Keynes, then it’s very likely that you’ve visited Moza in Newport Pagnell at some point over the years. The popular restaurant was located in a small, slightly old fashioned premises on the high street – it wasn’t the most glamorous place for dinner but it was always busy! Moza Newport Pagnell has now recently reopened in a much grander building that used to be the HSBC bank just across the road, and the place has been given a full renovation and refurbishment.

Revolucion De Cuba Milton Keynes Review Revolucion De Cuba is a big place with a…

Last month I was very kindly invited to stay at the Solent Hotel; a premier four star hotel with spa facilities in Fareham, Hampshire. We decided to stay over my birthday weekend which made it a lovely little treat and we had the best couple of days!

Solent Hotel is located in Fareham which is between Portsmouth and Southampton, so it’s right by the sea! On our drive down to the hotel we…

The Wavendon Arms pub has recently reopened after an extensive refurbishment with a brand new menu and glamorous look! The Wavendon Arms is located just on the outskirts of Milton Keynes in the small village of Wavendon, which luckily is only five minutes away from me!

The Wavendon Arms has reopened as a premium gastropub, bar, and restaurant with an airy, beamed dining space and an upscale British and Mediterranean menu. It’s the perfect place to…

We’re very near to completing on the purchase of our new house and we’re so excited to finally get the keys after waiting all these months! One of the things that we’re most looking forward to is having our own garden, as at the moment in the flat we have no outside space at all. We can’t wait to be able to use our new sun loungers in our very own (south facing!) garden. TJ Hughes recently sent me their Valencia duo set which includes two comfy relaxer chairs with built-in head rests and a handy small table with two…
